<i>Good Ol' Freda</i> Documentary Secures Rights to Four Beatles Songs

Good Ol’ Freda, the documentary about Freda Kelly, the woman who ran the official Beatles fan club for eleven years, has now secured the usage rights for four Beatles songs, according to Rolling Stone.

The documentary, which is slated to premiere at the 2013 South by Southwest Film Conference & Festival, is the first time Kelly has spoken out about her experience as a long-time secretary for the iconic band.

Two of the Beatles tracks to be featured in the documentary are “Love Me Do” and “I Saw Her Standing There.”

In reference to the usage rights that were granted to him, the director of Good Ol’ Freda, Ryan White, said this to The Hollywood Reporter:

“Clearly the living Beatles have a lot of respect for [Kelly].”

Good Ol’ Freda will premiere at SXSW on March 9th.
